While there are many reasons people fear change, one is associated with loss. With change comes loss, generally the loss of something held dear: freedom, comfort, position, ego, etc.
Linda Ellerbee said, “What I like most about change is that it’s a synonym for ‘hope.’ If you are taking a risk, what you are really saying is, ‘I believe in tomorrow and I will be part of it.’”
What if change represented hope concerning our faith in tomorrow? Change is inevitable. Not all change is good, but not all change is bad either.
Leaders should instill hope in others, and it will involve some level of change.
